Vedic Mathematics Magic

It’s Monday, April 17, 2017, and time for Math at ClickSchooling!

Vedic Mathematics Academy

(www.vedicmaths.org/Introduction/Tutorial/Tutorial.asp)

Age Range: 8 and up (Grades 2 and up; children with parental supervision)

 

This commercial site provides information and free sample tutorials on Vedic Mathematics.

What’s “Vedic Mathematics”?  As explained at the website: 

Vedic Mathematics is the name given to the ancient system of Indian Mathematics which was rediscovered from the Vedas between 1911 and 1918 by Sri Bharati Krsna Tirthaji (1884-1960). According to his research, all of mathematics is based on sixteen Sutras, or word-formulae.

These formulae describe the way the mind naturally works and are therefore a great help in directing the student to the appropriate method of solution…. The simplicity of Vedic Mathematics means that calculations can be carried out mentally (though the methods can also be written down).

Words really don’t begin to describe this innovative way to solve math problems and mentally calculate answers to math equations. It almost makes learning math like learning fun magic tricks. Go to the website and try the free sample tutorials that explain ways to find arithmetic solutions for: 

  • Multiplication
  • Subtracting Fractions
  • Finding Square Roots
  • Division

Click on any tutorial. Read the instructions and apply the Vedic method to find the solutions to an array of sample problems. Your kids will enjoy experimenting!

For those who have never heard of or tried this method before, it will really set your mind to thinking about math differently.

If your kids struggle with mathematics the Vedic system may provide an alternative method that suits the way your child learns best. This site sells products that teach the Vedic system, but the sample tutorials are free. It also provides many links to other websites with articles, downloads, activities, and further resources for learning Vedic mathematics. We have not reviewed these other websites.

Just FYI, YouTube.com carries some free Vedic math tutorials. Just go to YouTube.com and enter “Vedic math tutorials” in the search engine. A menu of free instructional videos on the Vedic system pops up that you can explore on your own. We have not reviewed the YouTube presentations on Vedic math, so parents AS ALWAYS should preview the material and supervise use.

Visit Old Fort Western, the 1754 National Historical Landmark fort on the Kennebec River in Augusta, Maine, with this virtual tour, and see its transformation over its 250-plus year history.

After arriving at today’s link, select your internet connection type, either dialup or broadband, to begin your tour. Once the new window opens, use the timeline under the introduction to begin exploring. Choose from: 

  • Military Period – 1754-1770

  • Three Family House Period – ca 1830-ca 1870
  • Tenement Period – ca 1870-ca 1922

The tours for the Military Period through the Tenement Period are in drawings and primarily show how the fort changed in its division and use of the space. Once you have selected your time-period, the fort image will load. Text on the page describes the fort and its use. As you move your mouse over the image a view finder will reveal details inside the fort. There are several tools to change your views. When you explore “2004”, it provides a more in-depth view of the current use of the fort as a museum with photos and panoramic views of the various rooms.

There is a lot of interesting history connected with Old Fort Western and the part it played in the development of the Kennebec Valley in Maine as well as American history in general. When you are finished with your tours, close the tour window to get back to the opening page. In the upper menu, select “Fort Information” to find links to the fort, house, and store history.
